Please be gentle as this is my first post, especially when you get to to EPC part.
I have a DSS tenant who is 3 months overdue on her rent. I served S21 and S8 notices a few weeks ago. The s8 notice is due to expire on 29th November and the s21 notice on the 21st January 2017.
Which route timeline would be quicker s8 starting 30th November or s21 starting 21st January? I’m not worried about a money order as she is DSS.
I’ve always thought it was quicker to evict on a S21 accelerated route then a s8 especially with the courts shutting down over Christmas (Birmingham County). However the tenant wasn’t issued with an EPC. I always meant to get around to doing one but never did as she was a family friend and desperate to move in.
I have since tried to get an EPC done but she is refusing access. The tenancy was granted in July 2015 prior to the new regulations on s21 and EPC’s which were brought in in October 15 so I’m hoping that it wouldn’t get kicked out on that ground.
Does anyone have a projected timeline?
Thanking you in advance.
